I never expected to be saying this, but some of the football played at the women's World Cup has offered far better entertainment than last year's men's tournament, let alone our own anaemic contribution to the truly dire CL final. Southgate's men's team played just about the dullest football I can remember, with maximum possession and minimal penetration, but were being praised from all quarters for their supposedly great showing, despite stumbling through their games via penalties and free kicks, and losing to the first half-decent team they met. Spurs were just as bad, playing every bit as badly as under AVB, holding a false position for half the season, courtesy of last minute goals and flukes of all sorts, and then falling apart when the cracks could no longer be papered-over. Pochettino continues to distance himself from the club he's paid eight million per year to manage (no say in transfers? Really? So no credit due for the occasional successes then?), and next season's line-up is currently the same as last season's, so the drift down from 2017's peak looks set to continue, as phase two of the endless 'project' commences. Will Levy pull something/anything out of the transfer hat? I'll believe it when I see it, and remembering the mess he made of previous cash splashes in 2008 (Dos Santos and Bentley, among others) and 2013 (the not-so magnificent seven), my breath will not be unduly held.
